Paleo Scotch Eggs

Paleo scotch egg recipe

A Paleo scotch egg recipe made with all fresh whole ingredients using no flour or breadcrumbs. They can be made in 30 minutes and are great eaten hot or cold for breakfast or lunch.

This Paleo recipe uses chicken eggs but also possible to try with quail or duck eggs. Traditionally, scotch eggs are made with sausage meat but I used pork mince instead. Great served with salad and guacamole or mustard.


Prep. Time: 10 Mins

Cook Time: 20 Mins

Serves 4



  • Pork Mince (500g)
  • 4-5 Free Range Eggs
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Fresh Parsley
  • Lard / Oil for Cooking
